Ped - West Update 

Beginning this Saturday, there will be changes at Ped-West, the border crossing point between the US and Mexico in San Diego. Due to the increasing demand for processing migrants, Ped-West will be temporarily closed to pedestrian crossers.

Instead, it will be utilized for the purpose of migrant processing. As a result of this shift in resources, there may be delays at vehicle ports of entry as staffing needs to be redirected to support the processing efforts.
